In Supporting your Child

Age Range: All

Asking questions is a great way to help stimulate children’s thinking and encourage them to explore problems. When asking questions, it is important to use language that helps to promote discussion and build on children’s ideas. We want to try and reaffirm children’s attempts at learning and not make statements or ask confusing questions that may stop them from having a go.

Simple questions that encourage students to share their ideas are often the best. Popular questions to use, include.

  • What do you think?
  • How did you do that?
  • How can we check if that is right?

More information about asking questions can be found in the document below.
